It could turn into a blustery, rainy afternoon and evening in the London area.

Environment Canada has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for much of southwestern Ontario, including London and Middlesex County.

The weather agency says conditions are “favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.”

It says the threat should ease by later Wednesday evening.
